    Here's my latest piece that I finished, I actually started this long ago but didn't complete it due to it kept splitting. I filled some with epoxy and started dyeing the wood and liked how it was looking and didn't want to fill all the splits and sand it down re-dye it so I said F*#K it I'm finishing it the way it is. Probably a mistake as it is impossible to rub out a lacquer finish and not fill all those open areas with compound & polish, oh well.

    Tooth brush, little BLO, you might be able to make most of the stuff in the cracks and crevasses go away. I'd try and clean as much with the toothbrush dry as possible, and don't use a lot of oil, just wet the brush, try and loosen it up and wipe it up frequently to avoid smearing it worse. I wet sand a lot with BLO to avoid white dust in cracks and crevasses, it darkens the dust so it doesn't stand out so bad.

    Thank you for the info I'll definitely give that a shot I have another one that I've been waiting to finish also with the same problem. The other ones too fragile to even try to fill with epoxy and sand down.

    That piece is beyond a simple 'wow'. More like 'Over The Top' or 'Crazy Cool'. :crazy:

    Thanks for sharing the pic.

    PS. Don't mess with the finish. I think it's perfect the way it is.

    Mostly with hand chisels (i.e. spoon, bent gouge, travisher) but did use a die grinder with burrs also.
